Overview of KL Monorail service
The Kuala Lumpur monorail system opened on 31 August 2003, serving 11 stations running 8.6 km with two parallel elevated tracks. It connects Kuala Lumpur’s main station KL Sentral with the “Golden Triangle”.
The monorail route mainly serves major commercial areas such as Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Chow Kit as well as tourist areas like Bukit Bintang and main interchanges like KL Sentral.
The KL Monorail is seen by many to be Kuala Lumpur’s missing transport link because it will connect with and complement the other urban transportation systems.

The KL Monorail is a straddle system and the guideway runs mainly above the median of main roads in Kuala Lumpur’s central business district.
